Lawn Party - Fri & Sat 5.10-11 * Save 10% on Outdoor Furniture/Playsets!
Recently I was reading about the origin of May Day (May 1st). The history is quite fascinating, but celebrating spring is the main point.
Spring just provokes happiness through the senses. The vibrant greens, the hope of new life in beautiful flowers. The happy noises of birds and kids. The feel of the fresh breeze and the warm sun on your face. The smell of fresh cut grass and sweet smelling flowers. The taste of in-season strawberries, asparagus, rhubarb and salads.
As my niece said after a bluebell walk, “when I get big, I just want to LIVE in the woods (in the spring).”
See the recipe below for a quick, easy snack for your bluebell walk in the woods.
LATEST & GREATEST: SANDED ROOT BEER DROPS
A favorite! Also try Lemon, Raspberry, Cherry or Green Apple (my favorite).
LATEST & GREATEST: MINI ANIMAL CRACKERS
Anything mini is cute right? These are both cute and tasty.
